Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
We are the only known families to receive VIP Invitations to 5 NASA sites, 3 Particle Detectors (CERN & Fermilab), and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
(LLNL) is self-described as a “premier research and development institution for science and technology applied to national security. Its principal responsibility is ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the nation’s nuclear weapons through the application of advanced science, engineering, and technology.
Preamplifier at the National Ignition Facility
The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a laser-based inertial confinement fusion (ICF) research device, located at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, United States. NIF’s mission is to achieve fusion ignition with high energy gain. It achieved the first scientific breakeven controlled fusion experiment on December 5, 2022, with an energy gain factor of 1.5. It supports nuclear weapon maintenance and design by studying the behavior of matter under the conditions found within nuclear explosions.

Boy Genius Aims For Stars
- Move Over, Einstein: Boy Genius Aims For Stars
He has been called the next Einstein due to his understanding of particle physics, while his perfect pitch has drawn comparisons to Mozart. He has set a goal of building his own star, which he plans to place somewhere in the Andromeda galaxy. He’s confident he can help NASA with its first manned mission to Mars.
